Title:

Consistency of elementwise-weighted total least squares estimator in a multivariate errors-in-variables model AX=B

Description:

A multivariate measurement error model AX≈B is considered. The errors in [A,B] are rowwise independent, but within each row the errors may be correlated. Some of the columns are observed without errors, and in addition the error covariance matrices may differ from row to row. The total covariance structure of the errors is supposed to be known u...

A multivariate measurement error model AX≈B is considered. The errors in [A,B] are rowwise independent, but within each row the errors may be correlated. Some of the columns are observed without errors, and in addition the error covariance matrices may differ from row to row. The total covariance structure of the errors is supposed to be known up to a scalar factor. The fully weighted total least squares estimator of X is studied, which in the case of normal errors coincides with the maximum likelihood estimator. We give mild conditions for weak and strong consistency of the estimator, when the number of rows in A increases. The results generalize the conditions of Gallo given for a univariate homoscedastic model (where B is a vector), and extend the conditions of Gleser given for the multivariate homoscedastic model. We derive the objective function for the estimator and propose an iteratively reweighted numerical procedure.

STATIC LOWER BOUNDS FOR GAUSSIAN RISKS AND COMONOTONIC ASSET PRICES ON ARBITRAGE-FREE MARKET

Description:

Consider a Gaussian random vector X=(X1,…Xn) of which we can only observe the marginal distributions. Our goal is to construct an optimal static lower bound for gB(X,K)=(S-K)+ where S=X1+…+Xn, in terms of random variables (rv’s) gC(Xi,Ki)=(Xi-Ki)+ and gP(Xi,Ki)=(Ki-Xi)+, respectively.

Consider a Gaussian random vector X=(X1,…Xn) of which we can only observe the marginal distributions. Our goal is to construct an optimal static lower bound for gB(X,K)=(S-K)+ where S=X1+…+Xn, in terms of random variables (rv’s) gC(Xi,Ki)=(Xi-Ki)+ and gP(Xi,Ki)=(Ki-Xi)+, respectively. We interpret Xi’s as financial or actuarial risks. We mention the paper of Hobson et al. (2005) who studied a lower bound for basket options of two components, which is a special case of our problem for nonnegative rv’s Xi’s and n=2. A related problem of upper bound for basket options is investigated, e.g., in Rüschendorf (2005), p.34, where comonotonic joint distributions of asset prices are involved. Below we present the main our result. Let μi and σi 2 be the fixed values of mean and variance of Xi, i=1,…,n, σm 2 be the largest of those variances, σ=( σm-∑i≠mσi)+ and M=μ1+…+μn. If σ>0 then for all nonrandom vectors x, it holds: gB(x,K)≥gC(xm,Km)- ∑i≠mgP(xi,Ki)=:gSR + (x) , moreover min EgB(X,K)=EgB(X *,K)=EgSR + (X * ). Hereafter minimum is taken over all possible Gaussian vectors X with fixed marginal distributions, and X * =(- σ1γ,-σ2γ,…,+σmγ,-σm+1γ,…,-σnγ) with γ~N(0,1), and Km=σmσ-1 (K-M)+ μm, Ki =- σiσ-1 (K-M)+ μi, i≠m. If σ=0 and M≤K then gB(x,K)≥0 and min EgB(X,K)=0. Thus, in this case an optimal lower bound is equal to zero. Finally, if σ=0 and M>K then for any Δ and all nonrandom x, it holds: gB(x,K) ≥ gC(xm,K+Δ)- ∑i≠mgP(xi,-Δ(n-1)-1)=: gSR 0 (x,Δ) , moreover min EgB(X,K)=M-K=limΔ→+∞EgSR 0 (X,Δ). Therefore, in this case the rv’s gSR 0 (x,Δ) with Δ>0 provide the asymptotically optimal lower bounds. Also, for an arbitrage-free market with one underlying asset, we show that subsequent values of the asset price form a comonotonic random vector only under a deterministic linear relationship (see [1] for the definition of comonotonic vector).

Remarks on quantiles and distortion risk measures

Distorted expectations can be expressed as weighted averages of quantiles. In this note, we show that this statement is true, but that one has to be careful with the correct formulation of it.

Distorted expectations can be expressed as weighted averages of quantiles. In this note, we show that this statement is true, but that one has to be careful with the correct formulation of it. Furthermore, the proofs of the additivity property for distorted expectations of a comonotonic sum that appear in the literature often do not cover the case of a general distortion function. We present a straightforward proof for the general case, making use of the appropriate expressions for distorted expectations in terms of quantiles. Minimize

A multivariate structured total least squares problem is considered, in which the extended data matrix is partitioned into blocks and each of the blocks is Toeplitz/Hankel structured, unstructured, or noise free. Two types of numerical solution methods for this problem are proposed: i) standard local optimization methods in combination with efficient evaluation of the cost function and its first derivative, and ii) an iterative procedure proposed originally for the element-wise weighted total least squares problem. The computational efficiency of the proposed methods is compared with this of alternative methods. Minimize
